Welcome to The Fresh Find! My name is Kristin and I’m so glad you are here!
Behind all the food, is that face over there. (Hi!) I do all the writing, cooking, taste-testing and photography for The Fresh Find.
For the past decade, I have been an advocate for eating and living a healthy lifestyle. However, after graduating from UCLA (go Bruins!), I did not find myself in the health and wellness industry. Instead, I found myself at a major financial firm, extremely unsatisfied and working long hours.
To help get me through, I started The Fresh Find in Fall 2011. My goal was to share healthy recipes that were easy to make. I wanted to show that eating healthy is possible, even for busy people like you!
With the help of The Fresh Find, I landed an incredible job that was aligned with my passions. I am a Regional Sales Manager for an Organic Chia Seed company and haven’t missed the financial world one bit.
My hope is to inspire others to start cooking, despite a busy schedule or lack of experience. Cooking for yourself is the key to being healthier and feeling good. I plan to share recipes that I love and I encourage you to try one out!
What You’ll Find Here
You’ll mostly find simple and healthy recipes that are vegetarian friendly– everything from Vegan Energy Bites to Green Smoothies to Vietnamese Spring Rolls and to Whole Wheat Biscuits. There’s something for everyone.
What do I Eat?
I eat everything. I mostly eat vegetarian, but I don’t ever restrict myself. I strive to eat whole grains, organic foods, and loads of veggies. I also make sure to treat myself when necessary—usually with coffee ice cream or another bowl of pasta :)
My Favorite Things
I love the outdoors, sunshine, kick-ass workouts, sweaty yoga, wine nights, and spending time with my closest family and friends. My favorite foods are my mom’s sticky rice, crab, pad see ew, and grilled eggplant veggie sandwiches on whole wheat seeded bread. Oh, and I loooooove oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
